Design: Handmade Christmas Postcards

22 Dec

Virginia Duran Blog-Creative Christmas Postcards- Design- TEDxCibeles by @_vduranSometimes handmade gifts make us the happiest people on Earth. Not only from the point of view of the person receiving this present, but also from the creator’s side, who puts so much love into every detail. When we’re building our handmade gift we tend to imagine the other person’s reaction and the smile on his/her face.Virginia Duran Blog-Creative Christmas Postcards- Design- TEDxCibeles Hands

There is so much to be grateful this year, especially with my TEDxCibeles team and that’s why I wanted to build something special with my hands,
– scissors
– paper of different colors
– and some glue
which resulted in 45 paper pyramids.

Although this postcard will be published in the social networks, while I was building each pyramid I was imagining the people who would be seeing it. For example Dale (the speaker I was in charge of),  Lana and her friend Hind from Dubai, and others like Jesus or Asier, who got to see images during the process.

I also thought of people who read this blog from time to time or others who are subscribed and leave their impressions every week. Thanks for reading, commenting and sometimes even emailing. Some of you are from distant countries such as Poland like Wanda, New Zeland like “Gallivanta” and Canada like Rebecca. Other readers come from Spain, Belgium, Germany, Ghana, Argentina, Chile, the US and many more. I feel lucky to have “met” you and enjoy reading your stories.
I hope you like this postcard which was also meant for you.

Merry Christmas everyone :)

    Thank you very much, and sincere wishes (are there any other kind) for a very Merry Christmas, and even better things to come in 2014.

    • Virginia Duran December 22, 2013 at 5:06 pm #

      Emilio, best wishes for 2014! I really appreciate all your support and comments. Besides being the 3rd top commenter, I am really thankful for all your kind words and interesting insight brought to every post every week. It really means a lot and I wanted to let you know that I am extremely thankful for it :)
      Merry Christmas

      • disperser December 22, 2013 at 5:07 pm #

        Kind words; Thank you for them.

        . . . wait . . . I have insight?

      • Virginia Duran December 22, 2013 at 5:13 pm #

        I remember this post I wrote about websites http://duranvirginia.wordpress.com/2013/07/18/design-20-amazing-uiux-web-designs/
        you checked every single one and wrote your feedback! I am beginning in this field so it was completely useful to me. So yes, insight :D

      • disperser December 22, 2013 at 5:18 pm #

        Uh-oh . . . I knew it was too good to be true.

        I think you might have me confused with someone else. I don’t see a comment of mine there, nor a “like”.

        I’m still going to hang on to them kind words; no way I’m giving them back to their rightful owner.

      • Virginia Duran December 22, 2013 at 5:29 pm #

        Oh I’m so sorry! I was convinced it was you. You both have some relationship with wolves and I think that’s the reason why I got confused. I am quite embarrased, sorry!

        Anyways, thanks for being part of my blog :)
